The Oakland County Sheriff's Department has released the 911 calls in the murder of a Rose Township woman.

Police have identified the victim as 31-year-old Alexandra Nicolette Brueger. Investigators say she was shot while out running.

The case is being investigated by Michigan State Police, but the initial 911 calls were received by the Oakland County Sheriff's Department 911 operators.

One of the calls is from a man who says Brueger was laying in his yard and she had been shot a couple times.

The man came to see what was happening after hearing shots.

"I was down at the pond and I heard bullets," is how he describes what happened.

He also said he thought she had gotten out of her car and someone shot her. He then tells the operator that he has to go and help her, but that he cannot take his phone with him. He does keep the phone link open at the request of the operator.
